Attaching the telescoping wand to the pressure washer

Materials needed

Before we dive into the process of attaching a telescoping wand to a pressure washer, you need to gather all the necessary components. This will ensure a smooth and efficient setup process. Below, we’ve put together a clear list of items you might need:

  1. Telescoping Wand
  2. Pressure Washer Gun
  3. Pressure Washer Hose
  4. Connectors or Adapters (if required)
  5. Optional – Teflon Tape

Identifying the inlet connection on a pressure washer

Before connecting the telescopic wand to the pressure washer lo, cate the inlet connection where the wand will be attached; the inlet connection is usually found near the pressure washer’s trigger handle and connects the spray gun, wand, and hose assembly.

Follow these steps to identify the inlet connection on your pressure washer:

#Step 1: Attaching the telescopic wand to the pressure washer

Make sure the pressure washer is in place and the hoses are connected. Locate the spray gun or trigger handle connected to the pressure washer hose. Spray guns are usually equipped with a nozzle or gun extension, choose the appropriate nozzle and attach it to the end of the extension

attach the hose to the telescopic pole

#Step 2: Follow the hose

In most cases, telescoping wands come with a pre-attached hose. If this is not the case with your wand, you will need to attach a pressure washer hose to the wand.

Turn on the water and unfold the wand to the desired length.

#Step 3: Inspect threaded fittings

Once you have identified the pressure washer’s inlet connection, you can select the appropriate adapter or coupler to attach the telescoping wand.

Quick connector:

With the quick connector system, the procedure is very simple. Simply push the wand’s coupler firmly into the gun’s coupler. Make sure it clicks into place, indicating a secure connection. Pull gently on the wand to make sure it is securely connected.

Threaded connections

If using threaded connections, you may need to take additional steps to achieve a watertight seal.This includes optional Teflon tape wrapping. Teflon tape helps create a tighter seal and prevent leaks.Just wrap it around the threads of your wand and move on. Next, hand-screw the wand onto the gun’s threaded connector until it fits snugly.

Note: Do not overtighten these threads to prevent galling or immediate damage.

#Step 4: Extended telescopic wand

Turn on the water and unfold the wand to the desired length.


#Step 5: Fixed telescopic wand

Insert the end of the telescopic wand into the body’s stabilization strap for better control during use.


Test your connection: security check

Your new telescopic wand and pressure washer setup must be tested before being fully operational to ensure they are safe to use. Once the actual cleaning process begins, taking these extra steps can help avoid any accidents, spills, or potential safety issues. let’s see:

Start the pressure washer: To begin the test, start the pressure washer. Make sure the water is on and the pressure washer is primed and ready.

Check for leaks: Look carefully where the wand connects to the gun and where the hose connects to the water source and wand. Watch for drips or leaks at the connections, which are telltale signs of a leak.

Tighten loose connections: If you notice leakage at a connection point, the joint may not be tight enough. Turn off the pressure washer and water source, and be sure to tighten any loose connections.

Trigger spray: Finally, when you’re sure everything is connected, you can trigger the spray to ensure the water flows smoothly through the wand. Pull the trigger on the pressure washer gun to spray briefly and watch the water flow. Water should flow continuously from the nozzle, indicating that the telescopic wand is ready for full operation.



Properly connecting and using a telescopic wand with your pressure washer can significantly increase cleaning capabilities, allowing you to reach high and hard-to-reach areas quickly and efficiently. By following the steps outlined in this guide, from assembling and connecting the scan wand to testing and adjusting its functionality, you can ensure safe and efficient operation while achieving professional-quality results.
